§ Sir G. Owen
asked the President of the Board of Trade how many Government-owned factories there are in Wales; how many of these are situated in the six North Wales counties; and in how many instances have final arrangements been made for handing over these factories for post-war industrial purposes.
§ Captain Waterhouse
There are some 60 Government-owned factories in Wales, of which eight are in the six North Wales counties. Ten factories have been allocated to firms for post-war use, and negotiations are now in progress.
